Grace Huamanchumo Flores

I am Grace. I am Peruvian. I come from Lima, currently living in The Netherlands. Founder and creative director at Graciela Huam. I am the conceptual designer that work next to my partner and a design and development team in Lima, and a production team in Puno made up of 27 talent craftspeople. Our journal started in the department of Puno in Peru, located in the south of the country. This place is characterized by its natural resources, its working people and the majestic landscapes. I was involved in the natural beauty of the city, the impressive knitting work of the artisans and the nature of the alpacas. My reason why, was to create something unique with the natural and human resources of my country and use my experience and lifestyle as publicist plus my passion for fashion. Our ideas and concepts are born in Netherlands and we make them come true in Peru.

Slow Fashion Journey

Our design work is founded on respect for nature, universal human rights and economic justice. We follow the principals of responsible and sustainable production, using traditional methods in order to achieve quality that is superior to industrially made products. Our team in Puno are certified on the principles of fair trade, also they receive training and technical assistance necessary to improve their working conditions, and they have a constant input of European trends mixing their traditional and local methods. Other link of the chain, is our raw material. We employ fair trade principles with our suppliers, and we adhere to the Peruvian production regulations concerning environmental obligations. Our suppliers deliver the finest Peruvian Alpaca and Pima Cotton, empathizing in the improvement of the Alpaca and Cotton fiber through breeding programs in the highlands and Coast north in Peru, which are essential to raise animals and plants with excellent fiber.

      About Quilla Wasi

      Quilla wasi is about Perú,everything began in my constant trips to the interior of my country and to discover the great and the incrieble cultural baggage. I decided to found the collective that makes me interact and understand how my own culture is maintained and evolved. What do we do in the collective? We work with communities that preserve the art of weaving and transfer their knowledge, techniques and even style in fashion clothing, taking into account sustainable fashion as part of the value chain.

      Hilda Elizabeth Sánchez Coronado

      In a country where there is so much textile culture, I dare to say more than the Indu culture, the intention is to turn the economic wheel through the daily activity of the communities: based on the alpaca wool and based on a business fair . To talk with each artisan, is to enter a fascinating world, where they tell you their festivals, their customs of centuries past their concerns for modern society, their desires and continue weaving telling stories .

        About Van Jos

        Four sisters seated in a row, all wearing the same dress. The height of dullness, the second girl in the row – Jos – thought. Later she would do things differently.

        She had always loved fashion, because it offered so many possibilities. She took her aunt’s hand-me-downs and made new things from them. She learned her trade from the nuns at the housekeeping school, but her style was too daring for her to fit in at an atelier.

        Ideas arise naturally. As she sits in a meadow, running a lovely piece of worsted through her fingers, Jos gets inspired. She can translates even a pretty door into a blouse. Its striking characteristic? The contrast, material and shapes. Each Van Jos item is unpredictable and striking.

        The Van Jos label belongs to entrepreneur Rosa van Ederen, Jos’s daughter. Follow your heart, Jos told her. And who would ignore her mother’s wise words? And so Rosa set up Van Jos, alongside her work as a photographer.

        And Rosa? She just loves Jos’s avalanche of ideas, from her cute details, to her clever and creative solutions. She is delighted to pass on the finest selection of these to you.

        I produce locally in The Netherlands, so I know under which workingconditions my clothing is made. For my fabrics and wool I use stocklots fabrics and wool.

            AANIN Collective

            AANIN is committed to improving lives, preserving Amazonian indigenous textile traditions and being a catalyst for positive social change. Our goal is to empower indigenous Amazonian women, through promoting and preserving their textile art (little known, even within Peru) through the creation of high quality accessories, supporting community specific social projects and developing capacities. The textiles we use are handwoven with skills passed through generations of ancestors, and are a source of pride for the communities we work with. Our truly authentic and one-of-a-kind designs aim to showcase our partners’ ancestral weaving techniques and their wisdom and deep connection to the natural environment. All our products combine thoughtful design, social responsibility and the finest ethically-sourced materials as a tribute to Amazonian cultural traditions.

            Kristi Denby

            I am Canadian, raised in a ski town in the Rocky Mountains, and I have lived, studied and worked on 3 continents. In particular I have always been drawn to Latin American culture, studying abroad in Chile, surfing and driving to Panama from Canada with my best friend after university, spending significant amounts of time in Colombia with my in-laws, and now finally starting AANIN and working with other social enterprises in the highlands of the Peruvian Amazon. Professionally speaking, I have an extensive background working with indigenous communities around the globe, conducting environmental policy research and contributing to international development projects. I am passionate about slow fashion, social justice, artisan traditions, environmental sustainability, gender equality and creating real and lasting change in the communities I work with. Starting Aanin has allowed me to combine various strengths, goals and pursue my vision for a more just and equal world.

            Slow Fashion Journey

            Aanin is centered on building ethical and transparent partnerships with Amazonian weavers while sourcing the finest materials and working with small leather artisans to create one-of-a-kind handcrafted accessories. We are focused on preserving Amazonian indigenous textile traditions, improving lives and empowering the artisans we partner with, rather than exploiting them. It is extremely important to AANIN to building long-lasting partnerships, respect human rights and verifying ethical working conditions throughout our entire supply chain. We believe that ethical manufacturing must start from the ground up, and be applied throughout the entire supply chain. We are committed to transparency, environmentally sustainable practices and we provide support, skills training and mentoring according to each community or association’s needs. Simply put we are challenging the fast fashion industry because we are putting people, cultural artisan techniques and our planet before profits.

              Contelier is a creative consulting agency that connects diversity management with business development. Contelier is founded on the need for more diverse thinking in businesses and in particular the creative industries. We have seen far too many panels on diversity and diversity agencies that lack ethnic diversity themselves. We have seen far too many creative teams that are non diverse and in particularly exclude women of color. This has an impact on who is heard and seen and which products or services that are developed. We are ready to create change by bringing new ideas, products and services to the market.

              Faduma Aden

              We believe the slow fashion movement needs to include diversity. We believe sustainable fashion designer have the power to re-shape the industry on many front. It is therefore important not to forget about diversity while change is made. We can’t recreate the same fashion industry but only change the materials or the process of how the clothes are made. We need to also see the human side and see inclusion and representation as part of the change we need to make and as part of the future of fashion. Contelier is ready to take on this battle together with Slow Fashion World.

                Leah-Jane Musch

                I'm currently studying fashion with Billy Blue College of Design, so that when I step into the fashion industry I can be armed with a bunch of new and innovative ideas. Watching the documentary The True Cost literally changed my life. It opened my eyes to so many parts of the fashion industry that I had been personally avoiding, and once I saw that film I couldn’t deny that I needed to completely change the way I consumed. I sold about 80% of everything I owned, downsized to a one bedroom apartment and totally changed the way shopped. Mother’s right hand in the creation and execution of her Foundation Entre Soles y Lunas, inclined towards social environments. I found quite the mix!

                Slow Fashion Journey

                My blog contributes to slow fashion by inspiring and educating others about how damn fun it can be to get creative with second hand clothing, and that style never has to be sacrificed.

                  The goal is to get involved, through ideas and projects, to spread the “slow life” approach and the experiences that this leads to. People who believe in intellectual ethics, sustainability, and beauty.It is important to go back to the moment in which we were the central core of our own existence. Richness and wellness are not related to what someone owns but to the quality of life you decide to embrace. There is the urgency to realign with the natural rhythms of the universe, start to listen to our inner voice and satisfy our needs truly.

                    Mirva discovered this way of creating businesses by connecting ancestral activity with the growing demand for products that had a correct value chain, respecting the social space of each group of weavers and training them in the art of weaving. Their main satisfaction is to see the well-being that unfolds from the careful work of the women with whom she works, making their well-being spread to each of their families.

                        I believe that the process of creating clothes should be organic, sustainable and in connexion with one self and our surroundings, away from materialism and mass production. Crafting effortless, elegant pieces is simply a part of my blood. I am a dressmaker who grew up in Spain, my childhood pastime was to sew clothes for my dolls with mum’s leftover fabrics and buttons. With the time, living in many different countries and continents fed that passion and added a unique set of influences to my creations. My aim is that every garment and accessory I make is done individually, designed in Sweden and hand-crafted in Europe. I love using recycled materials, leftover fabrics, natural fibres and reused buttons and zippers.

                        Every garment and accessory is made individually, designed in Sweden and hand-crafted in Spain. We use recycled materials, leftover fabrics, natural fibres and reused buttons and zippers to create a clean and classic style. Everything is designed and lovingly made in Europe.
